Corruption in ICCR 

The Milli Gazette Online

New Delhi: Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) headed by Najma Heptulla has been in the news for quite some time for corruption and financial irregularities. CBI has now been brought in the picture in this connection and it has assured of initiating the proceedings in this matter.

According to reports, president of ICCR Employees Union, S.M. Matloob had complained against large scale corruption in high circles of the Council five years ago. After receiving complaints the then Central Vigilance Commissioner (CVC), N. Vittal had informed him (Matloob) vide his letter of 4 Aug 2001 that after enquiring into the cases of financial irregularities and misappropriation of funds amounting to Rs 2000 million by authorities of the Council, action will be taken against those found guilty. 

However, according to Matloob, no action was taken by CVC and after the appointment of Najma Heptulla as chairperson of ICCR cases of corruption only increased and those who raised their voice against it were victimised. Among those who were victimising the employees’ representatives special mention was made of the former director general Surya Kant Tirpathy and director (finance), Devidner Gupta. An effort was made under a conspiracy to transfer an honest officer (K.K. Chugh) on the pretext of mentioning wrong spelling of Mrs Priyanka Vadra, but justice Manmohan Sarin of Delhi High Court stayed his transfer.
